    is it possible?

    A couple of months ago i got my first cp's two vft's, one small pitcher hybrid is says and a nep alata. they r all in the pots they came in. hopefully my pics shows some moss i collect growing in rainwater tray in back garden iam hoping it lfs moss. i want to use the green stuff as my top dressing.
    can i use the green stuff in the rest of the pot or do i have to dry and kill some and just have to top part green i was gogin to add some perlite as well to mix. i cant find moss peat where i live. final question can i pot my two vtf's and pitcher in a meduim size pot together

    I see no pics in your thread but as a general response:

    If its a very airy moss you can use it. You just want to avoid carpet type mosses that form REALLY thick and dense growth.

    Im sure you can find peat moss where you live, look at all the general stores and any planting stores or even find a friend close to you and have them recommend some peat moss locations.


    You could plant them all together but I would not recommend it. The neph will get big enough it will cover the vfts. As a temperary solution you can (a month or so) but you should have the vft together (minimum, I would say a pot for each (4 inch pot) ) but that neph needs to be in its own pot because it will get big and hurt the growth of the vft in the long term.
    Check out my growlist HERE.

    Its updated with pictures and descriptions of all my plants.

    Try getting a very large pot, something along the lines of 20 inches across. With that much space you can plant them together for a few years. Be sure that none of your potting ingredients contain fertalizer of any kind. Sarrs and venus flytraps go dormant in the winter. You need to keep them cold, below 50 F is fine. Make sure that they do not drop below freezing for a extended period of time.

    That doesn't look like Sphagnum to me - I would avoid using it.
